Weather Warnings Across the Area

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO VIEW WARNINGS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY

Flash freeze warning in effect for:

  • Chapleau – Missinaibi Lake
  • Gogama – Foleyet

Temperatures are forecast to fall rapidly. Ponding water, slush, and any falling precipitation will freeze as the temperature drops.

Mild and rainy conditions are expected today with locally dense fog patches giving very poor visibility as well.

However, this mild spell will be short-lived as a very strong cold front will cross the area from northwest to southeast today. Following the passage of the cold front, rain will change to snow and there will be a hard freeze as temperatures plummet. There may also be a brief period of freezing rain during the changeover from rain to snow. Snowfall amounts of up to 5 cm or so are possible.

Temperatures will likely drop by 10 to 15 degrees within a few hours after the passage of the cold front.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous.

Flash freeze warnings are issued when a rapid drop in temperature is expected, that can cause water from rain or melted snow on streets and sidewalks to quickly freeze.

Snowfall warning in effect for:

  • Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
  • White River – Dubreuilville

Snow is expected to move into the region this morning and persist into tonight. Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 20 cm are likely by the time the snow tapers off later tonight.

For areas close to Lake Superior, precipitation may start as rain, before changing to snow during the day. For these areas, temperatures are expected to drop quickly from above the zero degree mark to near minus 17 degrees during the day, which may cause significant ice on the road or sidewalk surfaces because of the freezing of residual water from either melted snow or falling rain.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
